Let’s just say it’s been a busy few months.
A new baby: he’s now six weeks old and just the most remarkable creature ever.
A new job: trying to help GigaOM, which I think is one of the smartest technology sites out there, expand into Europe and give the continent the coverage it deserves.
And, most recently, a new project: MATTER, an attempt to get great investigative journalism about science and technology that’s designed to be digitally native.
The last one is perhaps the most surprising — a little thing on the side that I’ve been mulling over with my friend Jim for the better part of the last year. We finally decided to test our theories with a Kickstarter appeal and it really floored us (and everyone else, I think) by hitting its goal in less than two days.
The trouble is that things have been quiet here while all of these things have been gestating. My words and actions get played out elsewhere. That’s a shame, but I suppose it’s the inevitable consequence of juggling so many tasks I suppose.
But my blog has been a big part of my life for a long time, and I hate to neglect it so.
I hope to spend a little time here, every so often what’s going on with GigaOM, and how we are trying to make MATTER work. Send me any questions you’d like to see answered in length — Twitter’s probably the easiest channel — and I’ll see what I can do.
